Artist Statement

Growing up in Yemen comes with a number of limitations, and that is where the alternative inside me was born. Through my photographs, I was able to travel through time and space to reflect my feelings, my imagination and my protesting. I like to take my viewers to a journey where objects and matters are not bound to dimensions, to see how many of us in places like Yemen struggle, indulge and go on with our lives. Through digital photography and manipulation, I bring together the past into the future.
